Re: Build-Up to The Office Finale

The problem with "real world grounding" was that very few American TV shows will let their lead characters be unlikeable. The original version of Michael was casually racist and sexist along with clueless. When that became....problematic...they turned him into a "loveable lunkhead," sort of a better looking Homer Simpson. And, just like Homer, he got progressively stupider.
